Not our ground is it, can't do sod all about it.

Thinking back to some of the states the DW used to get in after matches there.

Maybe this is why the current groundsman is leaving in September, can't imagine sorting out the turf after a rugby match would be easy.

Jolly good show !

I look forward to having a beer sat in my seat while watching the game , a pleasure denied to me by a discriminatory law .

Spotted a rather excellent claret and blue boating blazer yesterday , think I'll buy one and wear it on the day .Should fit right in .

This is just the shape of things to come.

Fully expect NFL games, ODI cricket matches, Harlem Globetrotter exhibitions and Billy Smart's Circus to be hosted at the LS in the near future.

Man Utd game could be moved as it's FA Cup QF weekend 17/3.
Which could mean a replay couple of days after the rugby (if the FA cup are still doing replays).

This is the price we pay for success and having the opportunity to watch some of the best players in the World turn out for West Ham.

Ours was the last ever QF replay, they've scrapped them in that round now.

A proper game where both sets of fans sit together and you can have a beer in your seat. Also one of my favourite matches in the Aviva Prem fixture list.

It actually works better as a rugby ground than a football one. Went to a couple of games during the World Cup there and found it much more 'normal' than during our games.

definitely, they will be looking to make extra money wherever they can to cover the costs of conversions etc and bring in as much money for the tax payer.

but as TTS says, this is a small price to pay to see some players worthy of a cat 4 uefa stadium turning out for west ham!

Saracens will feel right at home. Allianz Park has a running track around the pitch as well.

Had a great time at the OS during the Rugby World cup.

Suits the Rugby atmosphere far better.

I'll try and get down for this i imagine.
